Action Bronson – “Baby Blue” (Feat. Chance The Rapper) (Prod. Mark Ronson)

Action Bronson's latest Mr. Wonderful single "Baby Blue" reunites him with Chance The Rapper, who contributes one of his signature raspy, sing-song hooks (co-written by Zane Lowe!) and raps the final verse. Bronsolino delivers plenty of quotables as usual, and Mark Ronson's beat is a bright and radio-friendly callback to his work with Amy Winehouse… More »

Watch Action Bronson Reenact The Recording Studio Scene From Boogie Nights

There Will Be Blood is a great, great movie, but for my money, Paul Thomas Anderson's best film to date is 1997's Boogie Nights, about the rise and fall of fictional porn star Dirk Diggler (played by Mark Wahlberg).

Joey Bada$$ – “Run Up On Ya” (Feat. Action Bronson & Elle Varner)

If Malia Obama really is a Joey Bada$$ fan, America is going to have to face the sobering truth that, somewhere in the White House, a child is listening to Action Bronson rapping about appearing on the cover of Tiger Beat and breaking a whistle off in someone's ass. I know it's a hard… More »

Up until today, the Game's 13-minute, 25-rapper "One Blood" remix has been the final word in absurd, overlong rap posse cuts.

Watch Jonah Hill Cover Drake, Scarlett Johansson Cover New Order, Stephen Malkmus Cover The Black Crowes, Jarvis Cocker Cover Celine Dion For Vice’s 20th Birthday In Brooklyn

There was a not-entirely-common sight down around the Brooklyn Navy Yard last night. Dozens of cabs lined the street, because depending on where you're coming from the Navy Yard can kind of be a pain to get to, and also because NYC's been doing this thing where it's decided to just rain constantly in December,… More »
